Aslan had a good day today! He was a bit cheeky in some of skills and struggled to engage at times but got better as the day went on
It was a PLEASURE training with your pooch today and we look forward to continuing to help you achieve your goals, skills and improve your relationship.
Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!
"I trained hard, I played hard! Please find below the skills we worked on and my results. I look forward to showing you what I learnt and working on them more with you!" If you have any questions about the skills we trained please feel free to contact todays trainer."
|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning
|Comment: First session Aslan worked on his muzzle conditioning. He was a bit cheeky this morning, he would happily put his nose in the muzzle but when it came to the straps he would shake his head or paw at his trainer. The trainer spent a few minutes just doing the clip up around his head without the muzzle on his nose and this seemed to help. By the end of the session we were able to get the muzzle on and get him walking around the classroom, doing mini recalls and sit/drop. From here we want to keep working on increasing the duration the muzzle is on as well as getting him to walk/do known skills while wearing it.
|Skill learnt: Leave
|Comment: Aslans second session we worked on his leave it. We started with a piece of kibble in a closed fist, once Aslan stopped sniffing/engaging with it we marked yes and rewarded with a piece of fritz. Over time we were able to increase to a few pieces of kibble and begin to open our hand and say leave it. If he goes to eat it we close our hand, wait for him to disengage then reward. This video helps explain the introduction to leave it. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qR_dGuMXG_o
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: Final session Aslan worked on his send to place. As mentioned in your private this will be an important skill for when the new puppy comes home as well as redirecting any behaviours. Aslan shows a good understanding of place but can be a bit cheeky with his duration but will happily go to place from a short distance of 1-2m anything further than that he tends to stick by his trainer until they walk towards the bed, the end goal is to have him go to place without us needing to follow. Keep working on this at home gradually increasing the distance over time.
We recommend your next step should be…
A: Outstanding (90 – 100%) I understand my training, Neat & Complete! Ready to move on to higher difficulty & distraction
B: Great Work (80-89%) I mostly understand, Almost neat & complete! Needs practice in some areas. Mild distractions
C: Well Done (70-79%) Some good progress. Needs work, but on my way. Still learning. Low distractions.
D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
E: Unable to Progress. Needs major focus, seek further options to assist.
X: Not gradable, the focus was on Enrichment, Socialisation & Engagement.
